Disappointing end to the month !!!

Disappointing finish to the month with Thursday's bet on  Captain Dimitrios finishing well beaten fourth in the 6 furlong selling stakes at Leicester.LOSS -£200 / 2.00 PTS

Well supported in market going off 5-2 2nd favourtite ,though had no excuses in the race itself,after pulling hard in early part of the race, still had every chance with 2 furlongs to run ,though never picked up .

Captain Dimitrios looked horse who I thought could win small seller going back to the turf ,though this was most disappointing run,in hindsight had probably had more than enough chances to win a small race and looks horse to avoid in the future.



Overall not the greatest month with only very small profit in March,though that does make it three winning months in row and fairly happy with consistency of the bets so far this year.

  1. Hi Jerry

    A profit, even a small profit is still a hell of a lot better than a loss.

    As you quite rightly point out consistency is the key.So keep up the good work mate.

  2. Hi Mark

    To be honest,in hindsight I think today's bet was probably my worst selection this year,not the type horse I normally back beaten on his last 24 starts.

    I just thought he could win seller on turf,though got that totally wrong ,hopefully will not make the same mistake again

    Regards

  3. Jerry,

    Just like Mark stated a profit the first three months with very limited opportunities due to the small fields and weather is simply top notch...and that goes for you too Mark.
